After meeting last weekend, the Caledonian Union, and The Palika Party, both key members of New Caledonia’s independence movement, declared 2025 was still very much a deadline to achieve sovereignty.
This deceleration comes despite a controversial failed attempt to gain independence through a referendum last year.
Pierre-Chanel Tutugoro, a member of the Caledonian Union maintained that the independence campaign is still very much alive and well.
He said “ The FLNKS (the main political alliance of pro independence parties) will mandate representatives of the Kanak people, the colonised people, to form bilateral discussion around a colonial consensus and the accession to full sovereignty. A meeting with the state before our congress will allow us in no way to assimilate proper bilateral talks."
